Tuberculosis (TB) is an infectious disease caused by the acid-fast bacillus Mycobacterium tuberculosis and is an important cause of death worldwide. Tuberculosis most commonly affects the lungs, but has many extrapulmonary manifestations as well, including intraocular involvement. Tubercular nodular episcleritis is a very rare presentation and no such case in an adult male has been reported in the literature. Herein, we present the very first case of tubercular nodular episcleritis in a 30-year-old Indian male.
